New and improved airport experience

The Airport is opening 21 new shopping and dining outlets. They are significantly investing in their area. Hamad International Airport is receiving a serious boom with new shopping and eating facilities for international travellers. Flyers arriving and departing will be able to experience the new arrival of the shops.

Life after the pandemic

With lots of airports revamping in the wake of the coronavirus, it comes as of no surprise that Hamad international airport wants to be at the top of its game. With the world attempting some form of normality, airports want to offer their flyers safety, as well as an unique experience that rivals other airports’ services. It’s a beautiful welcome back for those that have missed the high quality treatment at airports.

Qatar Airways also started offering a Dine on Demand service where business passengers could select their meals two weeks before their flights.

It seems airports and airlines are looking at ways to streamline travel and get people back on their planes as soon as possible. However, not as many airports have had the opportunity to grow for the future. For example, as coronavirus cases rise in Thailand, volunteers have helped to build a COVID-19 hospital in a cargo of Bangkok Airport. It seems not everywhere has recovered from the outbreak.
